One of the great insights that has come from studying the brain is a comprehensive understanding of just what it means to think of our behavior as a response. Science tells us that most of our responses start pre-consciously (meaning well before we are even aware of them), and influence, even determine, both our thoughts and our behavior.
Knowing even this little bit about our brain, and the brain of others, is quite a call to action. A reminder that even when we are busy, it serves us well to make a little extra time to think about what we are putting out there, and how, and if it is going to return to us the response we want. In other words, when it comes to the brain and getting great outcomes from interactions at home and at work…Think Like a Boomerang.
